The line "It's just another building, Clark. A few more guards, a few more locks." is taken from the comic "JLA: Truth and Justice" by Paul Dini and Alex Ross. See more »
The U.S. flag in Lex's poster is not hanging in accordance with U.S. Army regulations. When the flag is hanging downward, the union (blue field with white stars) is supposed to be facing toward the left, not the right. See more »
For every force of good in the world there is a force for evil. Superman is the good to Lex Luther's evil a fight he has fought many times before but one that sees him truly up against it this time and in need of help. When Bruce Wayne arrives in town, Clark Kent could not have foreseen that this man would provide an ally in the form of the Dark Knight himself, Batman. Their methods are very different though and it will not be so simple to pull together to defeat the evil forces amassing around Metropolis.
Lets be clear from the outset, this is essentially a trailer for a film that does not exist and is not about to exist. It is a fan film, producing a trailer of a dream project for that individual. As such it is actually quite fun it moves quickly, has some good images and is quite engaging for all that it gives out. Of course, many of us who have seen good trailers turn into bad movies will know that making a trailer is much different from making a working film (of any length) and it does benefit from the fact that, as a trailer, things like plot, character and consistency don't really come into it. Viewers looking for those should stop right now but, for style without substance or budget, this actually does pretty darn well, never looking expensive but certainly looking a lot more professional than I expected it to.
Even in a trailer though, the acting can still be bad and indeed it is here. Nobody really convinces even in this short time and the clunky delivery was one of the factors that put this firmly down as an amateur effort. That said it is still worth seeing because it is cool and most people do like seeing trailers because they are slick, substance-less and full of polished promise, all of which this one produces more or less. Just don't expect it to do any more than the normal trailers.
